Cities and Sustainability is More Important Than Ever

Cities and Sustainability is More Important Than Ever

Here at PropertyGuerilla.com we have long suggested that sustainability and conservation are critical for all forms of real estate and now as more is learned it's critical to incorporate these ideas into city planning and development.  While we may not be completely sold on the notion that global warming has given us only 12 years to address or that impending doom will be upon us, we do feel that overall climate change and the intelligent use of all natural resources is the responsibility of everyone.  Architects, City Planners, Civil Engineers, Developers, and Builders, right on down to individual property owners is no different.  While we firmly believe that alternative energy is evolving daily and is a critical part of sustainability and reduction of stress on already taxed energy grids and depleting sources of energy, we also know that whether factored into new construction or retrofitted to existing structures in not feasible for everyone for various reasons, and usually the most common is due to economic constraints.  With that in mind, whether already tied to alternative source or not, conservation is among the only things that is available to everyone and every place.  Not just rising your thermostat a bit in cooling season or lowering during heating months, but a conscious effort to employ conservation methods that in many cases are free, or at the very least significantly less expensive than many of their alternative energy counterparts.  Like Grandma always said; "Everything in Moderation."  #ClimateChange #Conservation #Wind #Solar #GlobalWarming #Sustainability #AlternativeEnergy
